Confirmation completes the Sacrament of Baptism and “seals” those who are baptized with the gift of the Holy Spirit. Confirmation deepens our life in Christ Jesus begun in Baptism, and unites us more closely as living witnesses to Christ and Christ’s mission in the world.
The Gift of the Spirit in Confirmation is bestowed by the laying on of hands and anointing with chrism accompanied by prayer. All baptized persons can and should be confirmed.
Adults who have not been confirmed should contact the Archdiocese of New York at nyfaithformation.org for information about the Adult Confirmation program.
Parents with children who have never received Confirmation, and are interested in preparing them to receive the sacrament should contact Colleen Glazer at 212-787-0634 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org for enrollment in the Religious Education Program.
